The All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed the Bola Ahmed Tinubu/Chetema Presidential March scheduled to be held in Kwara on 17 January.
Saadou Salah issued a statement on Monday on behalf of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC).
The spokesman said President Muhammadu Buhari was expected to attend the campaign.
The Nigerian leader has an international engagement this week.
Salah said the president “insists that he would like to lead the assembly himself” which will be held in Ilorin, the capital.
The party regrets the inconveniences that the postponement may have caused to members, stakeholders and guests.
The President heads to Nouakchott, the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, where he will be honored.
Buhari will be awarded the “African Prize for the Promotion of Peace”, to promote the sustainability of peace on the continent.
